(CNN) -- Two police officers in Texas are getting praise after a photo of them buying groceries for a needy family hit the web.

It's a photo that's gone viral in Victoria... Two police officers and a basket of groceries.

"It just seemed a little odd just that they were in full uniform and everything," said Rebecca Vasquez who was behind them in the check out line. 

So, she asked them what they were up to.

"They actually told me that they were going to be donating the entire basket to a family in need," said Vasquez.

Senior Officer Bryan Knief and Cadet Officer Anthony Vacarro were on duty Sunday night when they were called out to a home in Victoria.

There, they noticed the family had no food.

"They just felt the need that they needed to in the kindness of their hearts to go and buy this family food and I just thought it was awesome," said Vasquez.

So awesome, she wanted to share it with the world. Vasquez snapped a picture of the two and posted it on Facebook.

Since then, it's created quite the buzz.

Hundreds of likes and more than 200 shares many calling the officers a blessing to the community.

"Of course they didn't do anything like this to get recognized or to be seen. I just happen asked them if it was okay if i put their picture up and now people know that there's good people in Victoria," Vasquez said.
